It is frightfully easy to steal personal information.
I just stole some of my own information and was able to get my credit card company to re-issue me 'my' credit card.
Granted, I had insider information, but I still think it was too easy.
On the bright side I've got a shiny new credit card with a shiny new credit limit.
On the dark side if I had been someone else I would definitely be losing out.
The lesson of today's story is to guard your information by shredding, securing with strong passwords and sending encrypted emails.
